With effective information system in place, corporate decision becomes seamless and less erroneous. The kind of information system designed for an organisation would determine decision process and consequently the outcome. This paper focuses on the influences of management information systems (MIS) on effective decision makingat First Bank of Nigeria,Samaru Business Office, Zaria. The target population was forty-five (45). The study did not require sampling since the population ismarginal. Demographic data of the respondents were analysed by means ofdescriptive statistics, while multiple regression was the technique used in the test of the null hypotheses. Finding from the study indicates that access to required information influences decision making. More so, the study also shows that nature of data collection and presentation style determines the quality of decision making. The study therefore concludes that all the three (3) surrogates used in the research have significant positive influence on corporate decision making. It is, thus, recommended that FBN, Samarushould make concerted efforts to sustain and even strengthen their existing management information systemsfor further enhancement of the effectiveness of corporate decision making.
